Vegan skewers needn’t be boring! These BBQ-ready umami powered tofu pieces add flavour and colour to any feast and their dainty sesame-pressed bite-sized pieces hits some seriously golden crunchy notes. The main flavours are miso and lemon, so serve up with a crunchy citrusy light salad to keep this dish singing. If the weather isn’t up to scratch, then these also cook very easily in the oven or on a frying or griddle pan.
